Diving Into Deep Dark Vitreoretina Ocean

Vitrectomy surgery, the vitrectomy machine, supplies, tools, and operating room settings will be reviewed in this presentation. We will begin with an introduction to the anatomy of the eye, a summary of the main diseases that involve the back part of the eye - retina, and how vitrectomy can treat these diseases. We will then review some of the vitrectomy surgeries I have recently recorded.
